1928: June 13, Frederick was witness to his niece Annie Dorothy Luxton (1899) marriage to Herbert Stanley Colton at Hosier Street Chapel, Reading.
I also wonder if Frederick and his family were at the wedding not only as a witness or that his daughter Edith was bridesmaid but mainly to give his niece away as Annie's father died in 1912. It is known that Annie thought the world of her father and turning to her uncle on this special occasion would be the closest family person to give her away. There must have been a fondness there as the above picture was found with her belongings after her death in 1981.
